"Serving local landowners and stakeholders in Sierra and Plumas Counties"
The Sierra Valley Resource Conservation District (SVRCD) works to serve landowners and steward natural resources within Sierra and Plumas Counties, California, to conserve and protect natural resources, thereby providing healthful values for locals as well as others outside of the SVRCD confines. The District Board represents local landowner volunteers, who dedicate their personal time to represent Sierra and Plumas Counties' voice on natural resource concerns.
Established in 1947, the SVRCD is one of the oldest Special Districts in California to coordinate local conservation and restoration programs since the 1940's. Categories of focused interest for the SVRCD include natural disaster readiness and prevention, agricultural stability, sustainable urban development, wildlife habitat, recreation, watershed management, protection of water quality and quantity, and the optimum treatment of each resource and lands according to the need.
